Apple Rings and Autumn Things

Edit Posted by with 1 comment
There's nothing like a warm slice of apple pie in the fall to start off your day.  Of course, I didn't make a pie (um, I'm a teacher...who has time?) but I did make a quick and easy apple pie ring for my family. 
To make, all you need to use is:
1. a can of refrigerated crescent rolls 
2.  apple pie filling in a can 
3.  cream cheese (reduced fat is my fave) 
4. cinnamon 
5. butter 
6. powdered sugar
7. vanilla
Mix a bar of cream cheese, about 1/2 cup of powdered sugar, 2 tablespoons of butter, and a teaspoon of vanilla in a bowl until creamy.  Arrange the crescent rolls in a circle of triangles with the larger part of the triangles connecting. (This looks like a sunshine with a hole in the middle.)  Spread the creamy mixture on the large part of the triangles in the circle.  Add apple pie filling on this part as well.  Bring the points of the triangles over the mixture and seal on the inner part of the circle.  Note:  there will be openings where the mixture is...don't worry, it won't run!  Bake according to directions on the rolls and you will have a delicious, sweet treat for your family!
I am hoping this lovely breakfast will inspire me to make some Thanksgiving resources for TpT!  I have already started working on one that I hope to finish today.  Here is an example of what I am working on.  The second two pictures below link to what you see.  Enjoy these FREEBIES!  Just click and they are yours!  FYI...the first one is just a pic of the cover. :)
Have you picked up my other Thanksgiving resources on TpT?  I know I am biased, but they are darn cute!  They've both gotten great reviews so I know you'll be pleased!
I am such a fan of seasonal books to go along with these activities!  These are some of my favorites!
Also, if you didn't know already, I blog over at:
I still enjoy posting resources for all ages since I have taught every elementary grade!  All Things Upper Elementary gives me a chance to blog about the grade I currently teach which is 5th. My latest post over there, however, applies to all ages.  It is about increasing student engagement and there is a FREEBIE for you to use in your classroom!  Go ahead and peek, the free resource can be used in any classroom upper elementary or not!  Let me know what you think!
I am heading off of here full of an apple ring and ready to create an autumn thing!  Okay, I confess.  Perhaps I had a tad too much coffee this morning!  I'm off to finish that resource above and don't worry, you'll be the first to know when it's done! 
Happy Fall!  Love and Hugs,
